The development of a new, and possibly hazardous, long‐range energy source is beset with two political problems (as well as the many technical ones); survival and public acceptance. By survival I mean continuing support, year after year, of a very expensive enterprise whose promise always seems...
The vacuum polarization splitting of the M‐shell states in muonic hydrogen can have a profound influence on the muonit de‐excitation cascade in deuterium and tritium targets. The cascade also shows sensitive dependence on the precise rate of transfer processes between certain excited muonic...
This paper gives some ideas to be learnt from magnetic confinement fusion and briefly describes the pulsed muon beam at ISIS, progress with the measurement of W s (the μα sticking coefficient), future beam plans and possible experiments.;
We present the calculation of spin flip rates for a wide range of temperatures in the case of ( d μ)-; d , ( p μ)-; p and ( t μ)-; t collisions. The calculations have been performed in the framework of the adiabatic representation of the three‐body problem.;
An accurate theoretical description of the muonic molecular ions is critical for understanding the phenomenon of muon catalyzed fusion. We review recent calculations on the tdμ ion which have substantially improved our knowledge of the processes involving this ion.;
Formation probability is calculated for mesic molecular complexes of heavy hydrogen isotopes. Account is taken of the contribution by binary elastic collisions with surrounding molecules. Equations are obtained that describe deformation of the resonance contour due to collisions. The resonance...
The recently discovered resonant states in the dtμ molecule are investigated, with emphasis on the properties related to the muon catalyzed fusion. For the lowest resonance of s‐symmetry above the (dμ+t) threshold we have calculated the energy, life time, geometry, fusion rate, sticking...
